It took a while. But they found each other.

     

These Halcyon Days charts a profound relationship that develops between two extraordinary people over a few days…it is a play about love and hope and the indomitable spirit of the human being.”
- Deirdre Kinahan on These Halcyon Days in NY Theatre
Read the full interview here.

 

Seán sits alone in a nursing-home conservatory, abandoned to his memories, when in storms Patricia, a feisty woman with a zest for life and handsome men in wheelchairs. A wary intimacy soon develops between the two – an unforeseen relationship by turns charming and combative, tender and funny.

 

Writer of critically acclaimed international plays Moment and Bogboy (IAC, 2011), Deirdre Kinahan returns to the Irish Arts Center with a new drama that is infused with her hallmark wry humor and humanity. These Halcyon Days is a funny, touching, life-affirming play about facing our fears and bucking against despair. It features remarkable performances by two of Ireland’s leading actors, Stephen Brennan and Anita Reeves.

 

These Halcyon Days was originally produced by Tall Tales Theatre Company and Solstice Arts Centre, and had its sold-out premiere during the 2012 Dublin Theatre Festival. Landmark Productions — last seen in New York City with Galway Arts Festival for the U.S. premiere of Enda Walsh’s Misterman at St. Ann’s Warehouse — brings the U.S. premiere of These Halcyon Days to the IAC.

For emerging playwrights: Learn a few tricks of the trade from NYT Critic’s Pick playwright Deirdre Kinahan who will be in New York for one weekend to lead a workshop focusing on the creation and building of character over two sessions.

 

Deirdre Kinahan has been steadily building a reputation as one of Ireland’s best and most popular playwrights. A storyteller through and through, her characters are finely drawn and she has been described as “a ferociously funny and unexpectedly shattering writer” (Metro, London). Plays that have contributed to her growing international reputation include Moment, which was a big success at the Bush Theatre in London last year; Hue and Cry and Bogboy, both of which were similarly acclaimed in New York.

American Symphony Orchestra presents

Hungary Torn

 

Thursday, May 2 | 8 pm

 

 

 

 

 

The American Symphony Orchestra brings two world premieres and two U.S. premieres to Carnegie Hall. The program features Hungarian composers of the WWII era, some who met a tragic end in the historic conflict, and others who managed to live through it. Despite the circumstances, these talented young composers managed to create some truly beautiful music. To deepen your appreciation of the pieces you will hear, join Maestro Leon Botstein before the concert for a lively Conductor’s Notes Q&A session, where he will share the stories behind the music.

Admission: $25/$35/$50
